Oh hell no: Massive crocodile casually ambles through the streets of Miami

A crocodile was seen going out for a stroll early Tuesday morning in the Cutler Bay area. For the Miami Herald

A massive crocodile sighting in the early morning hours on Tuesday, September 26, 2017, shut down the streets of a Cutler Bay, Florida neighborhood. The crocodile was spotted by a Cutler Bay police officer and he quickly summoned backup. The roads in the area were blocked off to pedestrian and vehicle traffic while calls were made to FWC and a local trapper. Since it’s an endangered saltwater crocodile the trapper was not readily able to capture it. After almost two hours the crocodile walked off and swam into a nearby lake. Edited by Pierre Taylor Reliable News Media

Name one thing you really don’t want to see around 4 a.m. walking around your neighborhood.

Watch out for that croc!

Before dawn Tuesday, a massive crocodile was spotted taking an early morning stroll in the darkness along the sidewalk in the 7800 block of at Southwest 216th Street in the Cutler Bay area.

Luckily no one was out jogging at the time. Because this eight-foot reptile was moving pretty quickly.

An observant Cutler Bay District Miami-Dade police officer spotted the strutting reptile, rode alongside it in his patrol car for a spell and summoned backup. The roads in the area were blocked off to pedestrian and vehicular traffic while calls were made to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission as well as to a local trapper.

How did it end?

Turns out the unwanted visitor was an endangered saltwater crocodile so the trapper couldn’t capture it and take it into custody.

After nearly two hours, the big guy either got hungry or bored and ended up wandering off into Limpkin Lake.
